GA Families.... Packet pick up went really well the other week. We appreciate everyone that was able to pick up their distant learning packets. We loved seeing everyone. When you picked up your packet, or have now received one, you were given an enrollment packet. We now have a locked mailbox right out front of the primary. You may drop off your packets at any time. Just pull down the door and drop in your packet. Thank you so much.
